Vaccination was extended until the 17th, following guidance from the State Department of Health

One day before the end of the campaign, on Thursday (9) Municipal Secretary of Health of Rio de Janeiro claimed to have met the goal of immunization in the vaccination campaign against influenza, which began on 15 April. According to the department, 80% of members of priority groups (elderly, children six to 23 months, pregnant women, women in the period up to 45 days after delivery and health professionals) were vaccinated.

Although he reached the goal, the Municipal Health extended the vaccination until the 17th, following guidance from the State Department of Health, which extended the campaign across the state. The health and family clinics remain open to immunize those who have not taken the vaccine.

Since April 15, were immunized more than 1,209 million people throughout the city. The units that were vaccinated over the Municipal Health Center (CMS) João Barros Barreto, in Copacabana, CMS Hector Beltran in Tijuca and CMS Jorge Saldanha Bandeira de Mello, in the studied area.

The vaccine protects against the three subtypes of influenza virus that circulated over last winter (A/H1N1, A/H3N2 and influenza B), as recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) and is the best way to prevent serious diseases, hospitalizations or deaths due to serious illness associated with influenza.
